19 Oct Welcome To Las Vegas, Senator Heller!
Welcome To Las Vegas, Senator Heller!
We thought our infrequent visitor might need directions to his debate tonight
Las Vegas, Nevada– Senator Dean Heller is not only horrible on the issues, but he is also horrible at keeping up with his constituents. After years since his last free, public event in Las Vegas, Heller will finally be addressing his constituents during a debate. The debate will be held at Channel 8 against Congresswoman Jacky Rosen, who is vying to show leadership in the Senate on the issues that matter most to Nevadans.
Since Heller is such an infrequent visitor to the largest city in Nevada, we wanted to give him a few options on how he should get to Channel 8 from the airport. We included the scenic route in case he wants to see where Las Vegans actually live, work, and shop! Another option includes a drive through UNLV, where many Nevadans enroll for a higher education and struggle with student loans.
Annette Magnus, Battle Born Progress Executive Director stated:
“Senator Heller, welcome to my home! As a native Las Vegan, I am offended by how distant Heller has been from Las Vegas. The last time Heller did have an open town hall, I had to drive 8 hours to speak to my Senator in person and that was over a year and a half ago. In the past few months, he has only come to Las Vegas for closed-door events or fundraisers. I find it appalling that Senator Heller only speaks to his constituents if they are giving him money. I can’t wait to provide commentary after the debate tonight about my feelings on how Heller has let Nevadans down. I frankly cannot even believe I have the opportunity to be in the same building as him tonight. The last time I was in the same room as Heller in Las Vegas, it was a private event and he threw a stage 4 cancer survivor out for asking a critical healthcare question.
It is important for a Senator to connect with constituents so he or she can vote in our best interest. Heller has proven these past 6 years that that does not matter to him, rather, his votes are assigned marching orders from his party and his president.”
